New Forest MP calls for regulation of sportives
Dr Julian Lewis says area is “is a living, working forest, not a theme park”
A Hampshire MP has called for sportives in the New Forest to be regulated, with the local council given powers to determine when events are held as well as the number of cyclists participating in them, saying that the area “is a living, working forest, not a theme park.”
Dr Julian Lewis, the Conservative MP for New Forest East, made his appeal during Thursday’s debate in the House of Commons on progress made in implementing the recommendations of the Get Britain Cycling report, published last year.
